Citation Management Tools
Special software can help you to organize your research and easily
create footnotes, citations, and formatted bibliographies. The four
basic functions of citation management software are:
Save references from research databases, or create new references
Add value to references with notes and keywords
Insert citations into a document
Format a bibliography for that document in a selected style (for example, Chicago, APA, or a specific journal style)
EndNote is bibliographic management software that you install on your computer. If you want to use EndNote, you or your department must purchase a license. Note: Some departments may already have licenses. The library does not license Endnote. Licenses may be purchased for individual use through the UA Bookstore.
